This is a project that I completed for my final in my first GIS course. I talked to Dr. Steve Brown at the University of Georgia extension service and found that it may have been better to use data on cropland rather than total agricultural land. (Agricultural land in the USDA census can be divided into cropland and pastureland). However, the USDA does not have specific data on pesticides broken into these categories, only for the general agricultural land category. To learn more about the census click here! Enjoy!
